Guam Department of Labor director David Dell’Isola is reminding unemployment claimants that they will be turning off the weekly online unemployment claim filing today, October 27.

“I just want to let everybody know that the 27th of October is a big day. That’s the final day that you can file your weekly claim. So if you’re having issues or problems, go into your claim and file the week. Even though the program might flag it as a problem, you have to file them for us to go in and correct it and pay,” GDOL director David Dell’Isola said in an interview with NewsTalk K57’s Pauly Suba.

He stressed that the online weekly claim filing will be turned off so anybody with any outstanding claims should file them before Oct. 27.

“That way, even if you have an issue, we can still address it,” Dell’Isola said.

He added: “Because after that date, we can come in and fix it and correct it, but we can’t file it for you. So if you didn’t file your last two, three weeks, then it’s gone. But if you did file it and you had a problem. We will still be able to go in and say okay, yes, you did your job searches, and you did this, you did that … we can fix it.”
